Not Working : 
1. Can'nt use AppleHDA :( Update : we can use AppleHDA for Creative CA0132. See here http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/309441-new-applehda-patcher/?p=2194865
2. Not supported Ethernet I219V yet Work with new kext see here http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/205771-appleintele1000ekext-for-108107106105/page-38?do=findComment&comment=2195842credit to @alreadystarted
3. Intel HD 7000 Integrated
4. Super Speed USB 3.0 not function at 10.11.2 Beta version. But, with 10.11.1 Public releas it's working nicely. Bug i thought. Update : with 10.11.2 Build 15C50 all USB are Working, use my "Z170X-Gaming-7-USB3.0-Injection.kext" and SMBios 17.1 Credit to Rehabman
 
 
I just need to flash bios into beta version then Go to BIOS Setup and "disable IOAPIC Entry" :) , then dumping your DSDT with Clover and check about all of your XHC device port and make USBInjection.kext from Clover :)

This is my Files

1. This is for Z170X-Gaming 7 + Palit Jetstream Nvidia GTX960 + TL-WDN4800. So if your system build is not same to my sytem then you need to modify DSDT File. Click>>Z170X-Gaming 7 Conifguration Tested by Me<<< to download files

2. Universal Setting Clover. Try to use this one if you have different Graphics Card, Processor and PCI-E Device. If you want to use Integrated Graphics and Discrette Graphics Card then set into BIOS for Primary Graphics from IGFX then just boot and it should active your integrated first and discrette graphics output few later. If you just want to boot with Discrette Graphics then set at bios primary graphics is PCI-E. Click>>>General Setting Without Graphic Injection for Z170X-Gaming 7<< to download files
 
3. AppleHDA Creative CA0132 Work without Volume Control. Click >>AppleHDA Files<< to download files. After extract you will get Creative-CA0132.kext, Layout1.zml.zlib, Platform.zml.zlib and Patch-OTF.plist.

    Tutorial for AppleHDA (First you need to remove VooDooHDA.kext + HDADisabler.kext + HDAEnabler.kext if you used it before)
    3a. LayoutID has been set "1" with DSDT. So you don't need to set it again with HDAEnabler or Clover Injection.
    3b. Extract the files and you will find "Creative-CA0132.kext" copy this to EFI/CLOVER/Kexts/10.11
    3c. Open your config.plist with Clover Configurator and add this to "Kernel and Kext Patches->KextToPatch" section (you can see this patch at "Patch-OTF.plist")

          Name : AppleHDA
          Find : 786d6c2e7a6c
          Replace : 7a6d6c2e7a6c
          Comment : Change Path XML to ZML
        
          Name : AppleHDA
          Find :  0088ec1a
          Replace : 11000211
          Comment : Rename Codec 1
 
          Name :  AppleHDA
          Find : 7419ad15
          Replace : 00000000
          Comment : Reset Codec
 
    3d. Copy your original AppleHDA.kext from System/Library/Extensions to Desktop. Then copy "layout1.zml.zlib" and "Platform.zml.zlib" to this kext with path "AppleHDA.kext/Contents/Resources". And reinstall the kext with Kext Utility.  :thumbsup_anim:  :thumbsup_anim: . Credit to Wern Apfel, Mirone and Abxite for XML to ZML method
 
Special Note : If you have already use my DSDT and Config.plist then you can skip step 3a. 3b and 3c

This is very interesting. I want to keep tabs on how well this works. 

 

Does audio not work from the creative card or is that working well now?

I'd considered this board when part shopping for my machine and briefly flirting w/ the prospect of going ATX, but the lack of AppleHDA-compatible onboard audio was a dealbreaker.

 

Awesome you got this up and running though w/o too much difficulty.

I have success installing to Z170-HD3 before  :hysterical: see my old thread http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/308707-fresh-install-from-usb-installer-el-capitan-10111-beta-build-15b38b-on-skylake-i7-6700-gigabyte-z170-hd3/

 

So, i can install without much difficulty :thumbsup_anim:  :thumbsup_anim:

Nice work Andres. How did you get on with Gigabyte's BETA FW F6g?

I just need to download BIOS file then enter bios, and press "F8" then you go :D

 

What's the difference between SSDTPrGen vs. the Skylake hardware sensors in FakeSMC.kext along with VoodooTSC...?

I don't know, AFAIK I use VooDooTSC for X79 Intel Platforms. I always use FakeSMC with CPUSensor.kext as plugin :D

I have them same like you but not allowed me to install el capitan with error: Still waiting for root device.

Cpu: i7-6700

Mainboard: Gaming G7 Z170

How can i fixed ?

You need to set XHCI Handoff enabled at bios,, and don't forget to flash latest BETA BIOS for your board. And check your bios setting and make sure IOAPIC Entry = Disabled. Then see my configuration at uploaded file above

We have different Graphics Card here. I think you need using FB Name "Chutoro" for your Graphics Card :D and Flash Latest Beta Bios for your board and make sure to disable IOAPIC Entry at BIOS Setting

Owh,, i almost forgot. You can use my "Z170X-Gaming-7-USB3.0-Injection.kext" at Uploaded file above. Don't forget to use SMBios 17.1,, see my config.plist otherwise your USB will have problem. We have default "XHC" not "XHCI" at BIOS. That's important thing to run USBINjectionKext  :hysterical:

SUCCESS Gaming G1 works out of the box!

 

Installed new beta bios F6g (didn't bother with F6i beta yet from the giga forums... Dropped in a pre-installed El Capitain 10.11.1 SSD (set up for an iMac 13,2 setup Z77X UD5 TH) into one of the SATAs without changing anything, used;-

 

XHCI Handoff enabled

disable IOAPIC (which now 'appears' in the choices in this 'safe' beta BIOS F6g)

 

Thought Id boot up just for giggles as the prior mob had basic installs with clover and setup for the 980tiGTX and everything is working.

 

Time to play with 10.11.2

 

Haven't done any other kext patching etc yet...

You need to disable Serial Port at BIOS setting, make sure your Internal Graphics = enable and set VRAM 64MB  :thumbsup_anim:  :thumbsup_anim:

This file is not a file that you are using right now. I can see the GREY Port is NODE 17 and Speaker is 4. But at your platform that you sent to me there is not the node. You have modified it, haven't you?

[success] El Cap 10.11.2 on Gigabyte z170 Gaming G1 / i7 6700k \64Gb RAM / NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6143 MB 

 

All pretty cool so far.

Both Killer network nics work with Atheros2200\2400 Meinze's kext.

Most USBs work / switched some off at boot so yet to try all

 

Attempting to see if Killer WIFI AC1535 will work (could've sworn I noticed this was working earlier...)

Attempting to see if I can get the m.2 samsung PCIe x4 NVME 500Gb card working

Will take a look at getting Creative 3D Sound {censored} working too

      (If you want a perfect setup then getting your own patched DSDT made would be the best thing to do, Mine will work perfectly fine but different hardware no matter how small a change it is can tend to have some sort of effect on the DSDT and your setup)

      More Specs: https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Z170-DELUXE/specifications/
       
      Catalina 10.15.4 - Windows 10
      What is working:
      BCM94360HMB Wifi and Bluetooth AirDrop, Handoff, FaceTime, Messages, App Store, iCloud, etc. Intel HD 530 (QE/CI tested, but now I'm using it in headless) Sleep RX 5700 (QE/CI with 2 1080p monitors connected) Sound USB Ports Two Ethernet ports macOS with a light OC (4.12 GHz - 4.5 Ghz, XMP, ASUS optimal) No problem so far ASUS HyperKit with a KINGSTON NVMe SSD - 250 GB  
      What is not working:
      -  
       
      Not tested:
      VideoProc says that Hardware Decoding\Encoding is fully supported and enabled on both HD 530 and RX 5700 but I didn't test it Thunderbolt (no equipment)  
      Issues:
      None  
      BIOS Settings:
      Boot\CSM (Compatibility Support Module): Launch CSM: Disabled Boot\Secure Boot: OS type: Other OS Secure Boot State: Disabled Advanced\System agent (sa) Configuration: VT-d: Enabled Graphics Configuration: Primary Display: Auto iGPU Multi-monitor: Enabled RC6(Render Standby): Enabled DVMT Pre-Allocated: 128M Advanced\PCH Storage Configuration: SATA Mode Selection: AHCI HyperKit: Enable (if you have NVMe SSD with ASUS HyperKit) Advanced\CPU Configuration: Intel Virtualization Technology: Enabled CPU- Power Management Control: Intel SpeedStep: Enabled CPU- C-States: Enabled Intel SpeedShift: Enabled  
      Getting ready for installation:
      Download the bootpack (Clover v5106): Click here -> asus-z170_clover_5107.zip  
      Installation:
      Create an installer with any method you know (- Mac: createinstallmedia - Windows: Transmac, Vmware, Win32diskimager) Copy my Clover folder to the USB's EFI folder Boot with the Installer USB If you have any problem (kp or freeze) boot with config_debug.plist to see what causes the issue  
      Post Installation:
      Download Clover Configurator and generate a new Serial Number for yourself  
      Some pictures:
       

       




       
       
       
      Catalina & Windows 10 Dual-Boot (clean install, on one drive):
       Boot into your Mac installer, Create 2 partitions in GUID table (1 for Win (I used FAT32 but I think it doesn't matter what you choose), 1 for Mac)
       Install Mac, boot with your USB, mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), create an EFI folder (if there is no folder), copy the CLOVER folder I attached to the EFI folder, restart
      Boot into your Win installer, Format the partition you created for Win, install. 
      Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type: 
      bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi  
      You're done! It will booting into Clover when you start the system, and you can select Win or Mac (or another OS if installed on a 3rd partition).
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING WINDOWS INSTALLATION (could not be formatted, etc):
      Make sure you have GPT partitions, and GPT (UEFI) installer, also disconnect all external storage drives (except the installer USB)  
      Mounting EFI from Windows:
      Open cmd in administrator mode and type: mountvol b: /s (This will mount your EFI) Open Total Commander or Explorer++ in administrator mode to manage EFI mountvol b: /d (This will unmount your EFI)  
      Notes:
       
      2020.03.26: Updated to 10.15.4 -> Updated WhateverGreen, Lilu -> Updated Clover to v5107
      2020.03.23: Removed "EmuVariableUefi.efi" -> deleted, caused false nvram map, now it's native, updated Clover to v5106
      2020.02.11: Updated to 10.15.3 -> No problem when/after installing
      2020.01.19: Added ASUS HyperKit NVMe SSD to the "What is working" list
